Allmusic finally got around to awarding 5 stars to some recent albums.
Kendrick lamar's good kid Maad city (best album of past decade imho) and to pimp a butterfly both got the bump.

It does. The music there is so incredibly horrific that it gets the minimum of 0 stars, the only album to do so. This should indeed be changed on AM.

Um, no. That is most definitely not a review. Not sure why there's no rating, but the text on that page is simply a description of what's in the reissue package. I presume Rob is joking above, but it's most assuredly not a zero-star review (as he implies, I don't think there is such a thing on AllMusic).

I believe the lowest-rated album on AllMusic to be included on AM is Peter Green's 1970 solo album The End of the Game, which has a one-star review.

I agree with you Harold, this is not a 0 star.
But i really think there's no rating for this album. my link is the main entry for this album.
I think it's a confusion with the broadway version

Of course I'm joking about the AllMusic rating of The Sound of Music.
Although I would support a downgrading to 0 stars.

The Sound of Music [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] not having a rating is more likely a mistake rather than intentional. This can be fixed. Both A$AP Rocky's Live.Love.A$AP and Bob Marley & the Wailers' Soul Revolution Part II were missing ratings until I recently contacted them about it.

I was going to send them another message today, as Royal Trux self-titled is also currently missing its rating. I can add the Sound of Music to that list. If anyone else finds a review that's missing a rating, feel free to post it on their support site. Their staff usually gets back to you more quickly on that forum than if you post an enquiry on the main site.

Just be wary that there are a number of recently-released unrated albums with entries that read more like a short summaries than proper reviews. These are intentional. An example of these would be the Susanne Sundfør - Ten Love Songs. AllMusic has no intention of rating these until a full review is done.
